Home Minister Rajnath Singh had categorically said that the three attackers had infiltrated from Pakistan to carry out the strike, given the details from two Global Positioning System devices recovered from the militants.

However, Islamabad immediately rejected New Delhi's claims as "baseless" assertion and said such "provocative" comments are a threat to regional peace and security.

"The Government of Pakistan categorically rejects the baseless allegations made by Mr Rajnath Singh, Home Minister of India, in the Parliament, today," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qazi Khalilullah said in a statement here.

Giving details of the attack in Punjab, Rajnath Singh had said, "Preliminary analyses of GPS data indicates that the terrorists had infiltrated from Pakistan through the area near Tash in Gurdaspur district, where the Ravi river enters Pakistan."

It is also suspected, he said, that the same terrorists had planted five IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) on the railway track near Talwandi village between Dinanagar and Jhakoladi, which were subsequently defused by the bomb disposal squad.

On July 27 three heavily-armed terrorists dressed in Army uniforms struck in Gurdaspur at around 5.30 am and stormed the police station, leading to a 12-hour gunbattle.

In the terror attack, three civilians, three Home Guards and one police officer lost their lives, he said, adding 10 civilians and seven security force personnel were also injured.
